Big Sycamore Farm
CSA Stands for Community Supported Agriculture.
When you become a member of a specific farm's CSA program, you are purchasing a “share” of vegetables from that farmer. It allows you to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally. Both the farmer and their members share the risks and rewards of food production.
How do you know if a CSA is for you?
- Eating fresh and local is important to you - supporting small local farms
- You want to know where your food comes from, the farming practices used to raise the crops, and the miles your vegetables travel.
- You understand that eating seasonally means that not every type of vegetable is available each week; spring and fall brings lettuces, beets and carrots; summer brings tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant and cantaloupe.
- You know that farm raised vegetables doesn’t look like it has been raised in a laboratory; real vegetables are healthy, natural, and sometimes not perfect.
- You want to visit the farm, experience life on that farm, and help your children learn how their food is grown.
